There are two threaded holes at 90 degrees to the retaining screws heat them (the retaining screws) to nearly red but don't melt them let them cool down naturally remove with an impact driver or drill them out
smack the rotor a few times with a hammer
insert 12mm bolts in the threaded holes and pull of the rotor by turning the bolts

You may as well invest in several cans of PB Blaster. Spray everything down and let soak. Put a pan under the area to recover PB for reuse, Do not force any parts, just lightly tap with a hammer, will help wick the penetrant. You may have to replace the brake pads, they don't like spray.

Do i need to remove the locking nut in the middle of the rotor (fronts) to remove the entire rotor 2006 ford f150


I'm taking for granted that the truck is 4wd.. No, just remove the caliper and anchor plate and remove the rotor. sometimes they are really stuck on there, I have had to use a good rust buster like JB80 and a heavy composite mallet

How to change my front rotors


To change the rotors you will need to first remove the wheels, then remove the brake caliper and brake pads. Next, you will need to remove the caliper mounting bracket. Once you have done this, the rotors should just pull off. If they still seem stuck you can try tapping on them with a wrench as they may be stuck on the hub do the brake heat and pressure over time.

1990 Honda accord brake problems


Short of jacking up the wheel and putting a new car underneath, you've just about covered all the possibilities. But I wonder, perhaps in your attempts to solve this, if you have inadvertantly introduced another fault? As you know, the brake master cylinder on a disc braked vehicle has no static valve. If there were to be a static valve in the master cylinder, the brakes would lock on after a few pumps. But this would affect both front wheels. There could also be a collapsed section in one of the flexible hoses which would let fluid through for bleeding but not allow the fluid to return. this would hold the brake on too. When you had the cliper off, did the rotor trun freely?

Do the front brake rotors on a 2000 Accord need to be pressed off?


Hi:
The front rotors don't need to be pressed off. Once your brake calipers are removed, the rotors will come off of the front hub. Some have a couple of countersunk screws that hold them in place, and they are between the wheel mounting studs. If your rotors won't come off easily, some tapping with a hammer on a block of wood on the back side of the rotor should help, as often they can get stuck around the wheel studs.

The front rotors are behind the hub will the hub slide out with a puller? or do i have to remove those ruted shut bolts, behind the caliper bracket


In order to remove rotors, once you have removed the tires, will need to remove the brake caliper.

Caliper is held in place by two bolts that face the inside of the vehicle. Remove these two bolts, then slide the caliper away from the rotor. Rotor should then just come off.

Corrosion may prevent the rotor from just sliding off, especially if you are up north in the regions where salt is used extensively in winter months.

HOW TO CHANGE THE REAR BRAKE FOR BENZ ML320 2001?


The rear brakes are very easy to change. There is nothing to worry about due to it being a 4-wheel vehicle and you only need to change the rotors if they are at minimum specs(printed on the rotor itself). If you don't have a micrometer to check the rotor thickness, then look at the edge of the rotor for a lip. A tall lip on the edge indicates it is best to change the rotors. Also, if the mileage is over 60k miles or you live in a cold climate(where there is a lot of sand/salt on the roads), it's a good idea to double check your parking brakes. But be careful when removing the rotors, they can hang up on the parking brake pad and potentially pull the pad loose. If the rotors are frozen on, use a lubricant like wd-40 on the center of the rotor and let it soak in, then tap around the outside edge of the rotor/hub area with a hammer to break it free.

Discs won`t come off Honda


Did you remove the two phillip head retaining screws that hold the rotor to the hub? Also, if there is alot of corrosion around the center of the hub, the rotor might be stuck in place. In that case, you'll have to tap the rotor with a hammer to break it free.
